Storyline

A Topeka, Kansas fun park dance troupe led by a 260 pound dancer (Ben Zook) learns that the park is going to close. Their leader convinces the group, now named "The Stupendous Six", to join him in a painted up bus and to hit the road to find the big time. The Six compete against other dancers to win a chance to compete in the grand finale at the Little Miss Orange County Beauty Pageant. The other members of the Six are Melanie Hutsell as an airhead, Margaret Cho as a oral fixated sex maniac, Brett Paesel as the leader's homosexual lover, Bruce Daniels as the African-American member with a penchant for misuse of black slang, and Michael Irpino as another more stereotypical gay dancer. Lots of cameos from tv stars occur in the various dance numbers. But this comedy does take most of its cues from "The Full Monty" rather than from other major dance films.

Why is this movie not on DVD???
23 August 2006 | by (West Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this hilarious movie at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in 1999 and have been waiting for it to be released on DVD so I can see it again. What's the deal!? If you ever get a chance, it's a pretty awesomely fun movie. Just the scene with Mr. Show's Bob & David teaching experimental dance class is worth watching it for! If I remember correctly they were doing an interpretive master vs. slave kind of thing and it was quite literal with whipping and whimpering and whatnot.

I tried to submit this review already but IMDb said that so far my review is too short so I've got to say more I guess. Hmm... did I mention that Bob and David are in it? There's a lot of great cameos and silly dancing- it's not something you really need your mind for, but if you liked the dance scene in Starsky and Hutch between Har Mar Superstar and Ben Stiller then you'll really dig Can't Stop Dancing.

Someone please put this movie out! (And drop me an email if that happens!)
